Harper settles in

You can just tell that Harper is happy as a little clam in her new home! The picture of her napping in the yard is especially cute. Thanks to her new mom, Sandy, for sending in her success story!

We are in love with Harper! She is such a loving and sweet girl. It’s only been two days and she only had one pee accident. She goes outside with her Chocolate Lab sister and she’s learning the ropes and lay of the land around here. She wants to jump in the lake with her sister, but of course we need to wait until her incision is completely healed.




GBHSA presents 2nd Howl’oween Spooktacular


The GBHS Auxiliary is hosting a 2nd annual Howl’oween Spooktacular at Avondale Brewery on Oct. 29, from 6-10 p.m.

Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door and include one beer. They are available online!

There will be a costume contest for people and pets, so put on your thinking cap and try to beat some of the hilarious costumes from last year.

Todd and Greg will be playing live music, CahaBones will have a “treat bar” for the pooches, Jazzy J Designs is bringing some of the cutest collars for sale and Shindigs food truck will be sure to make your tummy very happy. A portion of beer, Jazzy J and food sales will also benefit the homeless pets at the Greater Birmingham Humane Society.

Don’t forget to RSVP on Facebook. We’ll see you there!

Bailey’s happy home


This week’s success story comes from Jean Bendall. Bailey looks like a total goof, and knows how to take a serious nap!

photo 2After we lost our beloved Hannah this summer, I felt the need to find another hound mix that would be like Hannah.  I went to GBHS to see an older dog that I had seen on the website.  While waiting to meet her, I walked over to the puppies-and the minute I saw Bailey I knew she was ours!  She is a comedian, loving and so full of life.  She has brought joy to our household.
